Top Causes of Defects in Products—and What You Can Do If One Hurts You

It’s hard to believe. The product you purchased suddenly collapsed and you’re left feeling hurt, sick, and angry. What went wrong? How could something by a manufacturer you trusted harm you so badly? What can you do?

It’s an all too common situation. Products you trust to improve your life end up destroying it. When they do, you have a million questions running through your mind. Ultimately, all you want to know is, “What happened and how can I get help?”

Common Reasons Consumer Products Fail

When it comes to these consumer products, failure is more common than you might realize. Here are a few of the most common reasons defects in products happen.

  • Poor design
  • Lack of testing
  • Lack of danger warnings
  • Poor installation instructions
  • Improper maintenance of the individual components
  • Assembly or construction error
  • Delivery damage
  • Dangerous materials (such as lead or asbestos) used in manufacturing the product
  • Failure to properly test before sending to market

If you were a victim of one of these common defects, you know how damaging they can be. It’s important that you seek help from someone who understands what you’re up against and the true costs of your injuries.
